The Panun Kashmir, an organisation of Kashmiri Pandits, on Wednesday accused the government of failing to curb terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.


“We state it unambiguously that...the Government of India has failed to defeat terrorism because it has relentlessly pursued a conscious policy of not recognising the religious nature of the war unleashed in Jammu and Kashmir,” Panun Kashmir chairman Ajay Chrungoo told reporters here.



He referred to the killing of seven people in twin terror attacks in Dhangri village in Rajouri on January 1-2.

"We are all witness to a vicious policy of trivialisation of terror threat in Jammu and Kashmir," he alleged.

The Panun Kashmir appealed to the Government of India to recognise that the primary targets of terrorist violence in Kashmir as well as Jammu are minorities.

He demanded relocation of Kashmiri Pandit employees posted in Kashmiri Valley to Jammu in view of threat from terrorists.

As assembly and parliamentary elections draw close, the vulnerability of soft targets in Jammu and Kashmir will increase immensely, he claimed.

Meanwhile, the authorities in Kashmir demolished an outer wall of the residence of National Conference general secretary Ali Mohammad Sagar near the airport in Srinagar, claiming it was built on state land.

Officials said the outer wall and the main gate as well as the entry of the guard room of Sagar's residence in the Humhama area on the outskirts of the city were demolished as part of the administration's action against the encroachment on state land.

Sagar, a former minister, or his family were not present in the house at the time of the demolition, the officials said.

The National Conference condemned the action, saying it smacks of political vendetta.

“JKNC condemns the dismantling of the outer wall at Party General Secretary @AliMSagar_'s house at Humhama. Such actions of the government clearly smack of political vendetta, and the misuse of government machinery for the same (SIC),” the party said in a tweet.
